I am just entering the world of miniature Nubian goats. They are as cute as a button and I'm told good milkers with good rich milk. I don't know enough yet to truly help, but I think they are the cutest buggers. Just like in all things though, do the research and look for reputable breeders. More info can be found at American Goat Society
and Welcome to the American Dairy Goat Association
I can't wait to get more. Very easy to care for though I was told its best never to feed the bucks (males) grain. My are just roaming in my fenced in back yard right now grazing. They are given access to a goat mineral and baking soda at all times. They have a igloo doghouse for shelter. Mine weren't bottle fed or handled much so are still adjusting to being handled. Treats work good though :)
